Dominica is known as one of the most unspoilt islands in the Caribbean and at Rosalie Bay this theme is seen throughout the resort. Recently voted “One of the Unique Lodges of the World” by National Geographic, this resort is nested at the foothills of Morne Trois Pitons, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 28 spacious guest rooms and suites are elegant and beautifully furnished but still hold nature at the heart of their purpose, with the air-conditioning being powered by the resort’s solar panels and wind turbine. Also, the Zamaan Restaurant provides menus that are created from homegrown ingredients from the organic gardens. Additionally, Rosalie Bay Resort set up the first sea turtle protection project on Dominica, with three species of endangered sea turtles nesting on the black sand beach between March and October. Unspoilt, sustainable and authentic, Rosalie Bay is the perfect escape for those searching for an eco-holiday.

The focus of this small and stylish boutique hotel is friendly smiles, local produce and beautiful natural surroundings making it an authentic retreat for guests. With only 11 rooms this is a quiet and rustic hotel for guests to enjoy the oceanfront views and the tropical gardens of Grenada.

We recommend this to be a great property for guests looking for an island hop or twin centers.

All of the furniture in the cottages, restaurant and on the deck is made from recycled teak with the décor taking on driftwood tones. The elegant, family-owned resort is like many other beachfront hotels but with careful consideration for the environment. The Restaurant serves a varied international menu and the site even holds the opportunity to Scuba dive, with over 60 sites to choose from in the BVIs, this is the ideal location.
